Build / Develop new website on server while Public sees only Home Page

I'm looking for the best way to set up to develop the website on the server while only showing a static "coming soon" type of home page to the public. 

My html / css / php skills are at the most basic level...

Re: Build / Develop new website on server while Public sees only Home Page

Add a .htaccess file to your document root folder.  In it, put:

Code:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

Then install K9 as normal, and add an index.html file to your root document folder that has your temporary homepage on it.  When browsers access your domain directly, they'll get the index.html page.  You can browse K9, though, by accessing https://domain.com/index,php directly.  Leave SEO off in K9 to be able to continue to access K9 without worry about the homepage becoming inaccessible.
